    I tried both.
    Still no fix.... Cmon HP :D


    @ ludopwm
    I think you need to wait because it takes time to calculate the time for Windows 10.

    Guys, I'll save you the trouble (if you haven't already) of reading all 72 pages of the thread: at some point HP eliminated the time estimate through a BIOS update. I saw a silly post somewhere (perhaps it was for a similar machine) by an HP CS rep who said something like,"Well, those estimates caused a lot of confusion for owners and our engineers couldn't get them to be consistent, so we decided to remove them. The % value is more reliable!"

    The truth is that estimating remaining battery time is not all that hard from an engineering standpoint (assuming a reasonably well-behaved user) but HP took the easy way out. o_O

    If it really bugs you, you can read back in the thread and find a bit of discussion about third-party battery apps.

    How to I find out what speakers my new Spectre x360 has? Model number is 4101dx. Is there a way to check audio hardware name in windows 10 settings? 256/i7/8gb/FHD (hopefully Bang and Olfusen speakers)

    Mine still shows time and %, but I also have a third party battery app called Battery Bar. It hasn't been able to calculate power consumption with any BIOS since F.04. I have stayed with F.04 because of the lack of complete battery info. That is probably why mine still shows both time and %.

    Good luck, Jim

    Thanks you two! It is unpredictable and inconsistent on mine, but even when the mouse doesn't get disabled, the keyboard is correctly disabled. I'll probably try contacting HP, though they haven't been much help so far.

    Hi there

    My multimedia function keys (F6-F8) do not work on my X360 with Windows 10. Anyone else experiencing this issue?

    Are you referring to your previous question about speakers?

    I'm not sure what you mean by hardware name... are you asking about a brand name (e.g. Beats, JBL etc...)? Pretty sure these are not a named brand. In Windows, device manager just reports them as speakers, I don't think it would show up in windows anywhere even if they were branded.
